I would have thought that our mouths and tongues would work as de-facto hands no strings attached, of course we can't speak while using them.

Are our hooves natural weapons?
Yes, by size, as normal.
I'm more interested in exploring the things a pony can do instead of trying to play catch-up with things a human can do naturally. Nevertheless having to spend all those feats to remove those huge penalties seems kind of harsh, may I suggest instead we could automatically gain those feats as we gain levels?
Well, yes. That seems like a good idea. However Bonus pony feats would be kinda few and far between.
Levels 5 and 10. Tho you could buy one off at those levels and replace the previous feat slot with something else.
Also, if you wish you may exchange one sneak attack dice for a feat.
It's not that huge a penalty.
-2 is a circumstance penalty. As in ponies are quadrupeds and have no fingers to wield weapons with.
Lock picking is kinda heavy on the penalty sure but I offered a skill trick to go around it. C'mooon. 2 Skill points. :P
Now that I think about it I'm gonna try getting lock whisperer as an approved skill trick for my human rogue and carry hidden lock picks in my shoulder pads. XD.
Oh and I forgot to mention.
Feat gains at Levels 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11 etc...
